Trans Pennine Trail Green Pastures to East Didsbury
Chris Wimbush's photograph taken in January 2011 shows where the footpath used to continue along the line of the dismantled railway towards the bridge carrying Kingsway. The route has been diverted as the East Didsbury tram station at the end of the South Manchester Line Link is being built on the site.
Here is how it looks now with construction work ongoing. The station is due to open in Summer 2013 and according to the trammstop plan Link the route of the trail will be re-instated.
Plans were originally drawn proposing a route extending the Metrolink route from East Didsbury to Stockport Link but were withdrawn in 2004 due to lack of funding. If they are ever revived then the path under the tunnel is unlikely to look anything like it does now.
